Ok. The first picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post. But are those not the two sweetest faces you have ever seen?!? Seriously. We are so incredibly happy that our kids love each other (most of the time). I think Anya is the best big sister ever. And who couldn't love Peter? We've had a lot happen since we came home with Eliza. Two birthdays and one blessing to be exact. So here's a visual history of the past few events.
Mark turned 9 at the end of September.
Eliza Rose Christensen was blessed on October 1, 2009. Both sets of grandparents were able to be here for the special day.
We broke tradition...and it wasn't an easy thing to do! All of our other children have been blessed in Grandpa Christensen's home. Living in Virginia presented a distance challenge. So Eliza was blessed in our home. But both sets of grandparents were here...and family is all that matters. Traditions are over-rated! :) It's kind of cute that Anya snuck in the picture. But it's fitting. She was probably the most excited for Eliza's arrival.
And then we celebrated Luke's birthday on October 5. He turned 2. Good thing James is in the background of this picture. All 6 kids are represented in this post. Whew! We wouldn't want anyone to get a complex about being left out. :)
So that is what has been happening the past month. We have one more birthday before all the holidays hit. I'm sure we'll have more to share soon.
